It's interesting that they chose to put Bryce Dallas Howard on the poster rather than Chris Pratt, who has been the focus of most of the promotional material so far. Maybe they want to seem more woman-friendly after Joss Whedon called out their first clip for being sexist, which honestly we pretty much agree with:
...and I'm too busy wishing this clip wasn't 70's era sexist. She's a stiff, he's a life-force - really? Still? https://t.co/qqts4jpSva— Joss Whedon (@josswhedon) April 10, 2015
We stopped just short of calling it sexist when it first came out, only because there's a slim possibility that context could make the clip seem less sexist. But he's absolutely right that from all appearances so far, both characters seem to fit into outdated tropes that reinforce the worst kind of traditional gender roles.
Colin Trevorrow also revealed today that there will be a new trailer for Jurassic World available on Monday:
